About the Owner
I live in England with my wife. My wife and I both work, but spend most of our holidays in Portugal, where we have made a few friends and have really fallen in love with this particular part of the country.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Stayed at this villa with some of my friends and their kids and we had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The villa was everything and more. It had a rural surrounding and was just 5 minutes drive away from all amenities. The house was well kept and clean with plenty of space. The owners/caretakers were quick to respond to all our needs.
The weather was good to us and we managed to pack lots of fun into it. The kids enjoyed the go carting and we all took full advantage of the swimming pool and the games facilities.
The owners provided us with details of a website where we were able to book a lift to and from the airport and the car was delivered to our door so we were spared the aggravation of driving to and from the airport. We also booked a wine tasting tour with them. Would have liked to have had a massage as well but ran out of time.
The beach at Foz was lovely but too crowded for my liking I prefered my time by the pool and doing some sightseeing of nearby towns. We enjoyed

We just came back from a holiday in Caldas de Rainha. The villa is beautiful and spacious. It is big enough for a large extended family which is what we were. Three generations. The villa is a little secluded so I would advice you get a car but it's only around 45 mins from the airport and once there it's worth it. The town is around ten minutes drive and has everything including a McDonalds, Lidl, Tesco, shops, a market and resturants. There are two beautiful beaches one in Foz and one at Nazare. The one at Nazare was our favourite and it's very busy with a Chinese resturant as well as an Irish bar and many other bars and resturants, shops and water sports. All in all I would recommend this villa to anyone. Just a short distance up the hill there is a lovely resturant run by a family and it's serves a massive steak with salad, chips and rice for €11.00 and a litre of house wine for €2 (Not the GDF, the othe resturant up the road) Don't hesitate to book this villa. The owner is lovely and is very helpful!
Great family holiday
Love the area and the villa was great. The out door area was perfect for all of us. Loved the pool which is a very good size and the bbq area is spot on, outside loo as well.
All clean and a great villa. Local restraint for local cooking very good and very good value.
Would reckomend , and the communication from the owners has been fantastic.
Villa Amaya is exactly as it says - romantic and tranquil. And it looks much better than it looks in the photos. We returned to the Villa Amaya again in 2015 following our first visit in 2010. The Villa is a peaceful, private retreat, I cannot recommend highly enough. The facilities at the villa are super and adequate for us during our stay; it was clean and well maintained by the local management team with a good supply of towels, including pool towels. There is plenty of space for families and children to run around and play.
The pool was well maintained and a smashing temperature for regular dips as well bbq on the patio.
Although the villa offers total privacy you are not too far from civilisation.
We loved to walk to the nearby restaurant (about 10 minutes) then have our breakfast and delicious lunch. The nearest supermarket is about just 5 minutes drive and historical town of Obidos just 10 minutes drive away - so is the town of Caldas da Rainha which has shops, shopping mall, theatre, local markets, pharmacy, bakers supermarket (well stocked) bars and anything one need.
Villa Amaya offers a fantastic base to explore the silver coast but a car is recommend. Beaches are fantastic and just make sure you take your bathers so you can stop at any of the fabulous beaches. A wonderful experience for the whole family and something to do for everyone. There owner and manager were friendly and helpful and quick to respond to emails / queries. Would highly recommended to all my family and friends.
Absolutely gorgeous villa with idyllic private garden and pool. A beautiful place with plenty of space, perfect for 10 people to share. Kitchen has a great space as well as loads of space outside in the garden, terrace, or bbq area, very well equipped with everything.
Bedrooms have beautiful views of the pool and the garden from the windows. Both upstairs bedrooms have lovely views of the apple orchards and vineyard. Couldn't have been more tranquil yet only minutes to the main supermarket, major town and just 2 minutes from the motorway, we'd happily stay again.
This is a truly amazing place. We were there in late september and were extremely pleased with the cleanliness, location and helpfulness of our hosts. The rooms have everything you need and the view is absolutely stunning.
This is a lovely and cosy villa that we loved very much. Region is fantastic with lovely food and so many places to explore. it was also the festive period that we enjoyed most.
Close to all ameneties, and with all the facilites at hand - just felt at home and enoyed sitting by the pool enjoying the sunshine. Loved it all - very done to the owner and team who looked after it and looked after us too. Would definitely recommend.

Villa Amaya is well positioned to enjoy everything that the Silver Coast has to offer - good beaches, great food, amazing sightseeing and numerous sporting facilities. Closer at hand are local cafes. Just a 10 minute walk and another is a 15 minute walk to the village of Fanadia which boasts a football ground. The restaurant in Fanadia village Adega Velha provides a dish of the day for each day of the week. If you book a table the day before, they prepare your choice of food [ portuguese cuisine or burgers and fries/ sandwiches ] Up market restaurants to suit everyone' taste from Chinese to Indian can be found in Caldas Da Rainha 5 minutes drive.
The beautiful beach at Foz do Arelho is a 15 minutes drive away Foz de Arelho is a delightfully unspoilt village despite being the gateway to the stunning Lagoon and beaches beyond. While those at Sao Martinho and Nazare are a 20 minutes drive away. It is said that the picturesque village of Nazaré got its name from a statue of the Virgin Mary brought to town from Nazareth by a monk in the 4th century. Today it is Portugal's most famous fishing village, having always drawn visitors to its beach and genuinely colorful life. There is a disco/night club in Obidos. The sprawling spa town of Caldas da Rainha is famous for its locally-made ceramics and thermal cures. It has a tourist office, shopping centre, supermarkets, a bowling alley, restaurants and banks [you can change currency here]. There is a go carting arena and a tenni court in Caldas da Rainha, and a garden, buddha eden in Cadaval.
A day trip to Lisbon is recommended but parking in Lisbon is a nightmare. The bus service to Lisbon from Caldas is a good alternative means of transport. and a taxi from the Villa to the town costs 10-12 Euros in the daytime.
You can arrange to have massages and other beauty treatments at the villa itself.
Day trips to various places of interest eg. Sintra, Cascais, Lisbon etc. can be arranged with tour companies. Also of great interest are wine tours in the region and bike tours to nearby places if you are so inclined.
All water sport can be had at Foz do Arelho or a bit furthur afield is Peniche.
The villa sleeps 10 comfortably but can accommodate another 2 at the rate of £30 per person per week. Mid - holiday cleaning can be arranged at an extra cost of £55 [ light clean ] sweeping and mopping. Beach towels are an extra, £2.00 each.
